Hello, JACustomer. I have been a Veterinary Nurse for over 15 years and would be happy to help you today. I'm reviewing your question right now.

Expert:  PitRottMommy replied 9 months ago.

Were any oral x-rays taken at the time of the teeth being pulled 5 months ago?

What antibiotics were tried and how recently?

When was bloodwork last performed?

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
Not sure re: x-rays; suspect not....reference was made at one point that x-rays might be considered if antibiotics were not effective---possibility of tumor?
Customer: replied 9 months ago.
I will return to local vet ASAP--thanks for your effort but I must now move on
